"What 's in a name?
That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

-Romeo and Juliet. Act ii. Sc. 2.

The translation of "fleur-de-lis" is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life.

The symbolism of plants, a methodology of transferring information about them, and their properties, predates all recorded records. How do we know what to eat? What to make dye with? What will kill our enemies or that unwanted spouse? Where did that knowledge come from? It is there, in your garden, in the nursery rhymes, in the folklore and myths.

Humans have been gleaning sustenance and shelter from plants since the dawn of time. Today we still do this, although our methods would seem magical to those from the past. Yet, plants are not just a source corporeal nourishment, they also feed our pschye, and the beauty is appreciated not only in natural forms but also our meager attempts to create pleasing effects in our gardens.
